Even with the emergence of multiple enemies trying to eliminate Cardo Dalisay (Coco Martin) and the Task Force Agila, Richard Gutierrez has his own ways to stand out from the show’s bunch of kontrabidas. His character, the wealthy bachelor Lito, is marked as the stylish rival on a par with Cardo in terms of charisma and fighting abilities. In this Kapamilya Toplist, we rounded up the scenes from FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano that showcase Richard’s stunning and brilliant flair for action.
Remember that Lito was close to stealing Cardo’s wife, Alyana (Yassi Pressman), and that alone wins him major kontrabida points. Because as we all know, Alyanna is Cardo’s kryptonite and losing her makes him weak and susceptible to defeat.
Besides building the believable love triangle, Richard is also lauded for his action scenes in the series, starting with joining the Task Force Agila and Black Ops’ crossfire in an attempt to save Alyana. It can’t be denied that Lito’s presence and his savage gun fighting skills added more spice to that engrossing big scene.
Next on the list is the life-and-death encounter of their group then-headed by Don Damian, the former boss he used to protect but betrayed in the end due to selfish ambitions. Lito showcased more of his abilities in the scene where he tried to save Lara (Bubbles Paraiso) and her friends from a group of double-crossing foreign drug dealers. While he wasn’t able to fulfil his promise to keep Lara alive, the fact that he’s the only one who managed to escape speak so well of his abilities to fight and protect himself.
In a shooting scene with Lara’s father, the vengeful Senyor Enrique Vera (Simon Ibarra), Richard treated us with his action skills and handsome, badass appeal. It was a delight to watch him in his bad guy element as he matched the action with an impressive delivery of lines. In that scene, Lito played it wise by asking Enrique to stop the war between them, all the while gearing up for a possible attack.
The second round of Valmoria-Vera clash ensued as Enrique is determined to avenge his daughter’s death by killing Lito, who he blames for what happened to Lara. While outnumbered, Lito and his team managed to escape the hands of death, thanks to his effective command.
The most incredible action scene of Lito, thus far, is the visually entertaining clash that led him to an alliance with Lily (Lorna Tolentino). As Lito’s group tried to evade the enemies, his henchmen asked him to just leave and save his life. But the dauntless Lito also showed devotion to his men and vowed to fight with them no matter what happens. A surprise rescue came, then, Lily went out of her car to introduce herself to Lito and she took advantage of his slight desperation to convince him to connive with her.
For now, we end this Toplist with these scenes as we look forward to Lito’s biggest battle – the moment he finally faces Cardo again. Don’t miss the thrilling episodes of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
